where everybody's a pundit. >> yeah. >> right? the person -- no, they're better than most of us. but the person in the coffee shop, you know, wants to talk about -- especially right before an election. >> totally. >> this is something that happens in america. most americans unlike we of normal characters can shut off politics for a lot of the time. but if you're in the week before an election, everybody's going to look at it. >> that's right. >>> and the fascinating thing is we think we need to explain chris christie. we look to him and know he's a big republican and all the dynamics and i think they saw him standing there saying what they wanted him to say. especially at a point where polling shows, like, 80% of americans really would like to have a little bit of rapprochement and then to have michael boom blerg loomber berb next day and say this thing tipped me. i'm voting for obama, this is a dynamic significant in our politics. >> what i think is fascinating, of course, one of the key arguments for barack obama in 2008, right, he was going to be the person that brought together r

. using data was migrated into the obama campaign. we are going to be in a video game. we are in your video game and there's an obama ad. we are going find where you live like coca-cola targets you. it's survived tharks model. >> it's very important. obama seems to have mastered this whole thing. the microtargeting, the sophisticated analysis, there's a little thing called the voters and things called issues and how you get voters energized in your candidacy and in your platform. i think we lose a great deal of that in when we start talking so much about what is it going to take -- >> wait. defend that. defend that. >> i'll second the motion. >> i'm going to argue both of you. >> i'll second the motion. it's become a science, this microtargeting of voters. you lose sight of the people, lose sight of the issues on the ground. however, if you have field offices in all the communities, counties in ohio, you are trying to engage people on the ground. it's better than the air war, which republicans relied on. here is the deal. to me, the democrats, at best are trying to expand the electora

work. tuesday's election brought us not just a second term for president obama but a new congress as well. there are two ways to look at the make up of the congress. one is the endorsement of the status quo. asking the two to work together as house speaker john boehner put it the day after the election. >> the american people have spoken. they reelected president obama. they have again reelected a republican majority in the house of representatives. if there's a mandate in yesterday's results, it's a mandate for us to find a way to work together on the solutions to the challenges we all face as a nation. >> the other way to interpret the results is to see them as a resounding liberal governance. a larger and apparently more democratic majority in the senate. it's how harry reid framed the results. >> we had an overwhelming re-election of the president. we picked up seats in the senate and the house. it's not the status quo. >> one thing is clear. it will not look like any congress we have ever had. the most stunning exacten is the diminishing number of white men in house of represent

paying us to take money off their hands, borrow more money as a temporary increase in the deficit frankly, use that to invest in infrastructure, schools, hospitals, roads, bridges, smart electric grid protection against hurricanes, whatever, which will make us more competitive in the long run. >> right. >> number one. number two, give money to state and local governments, as we did in the stimulus bill but haven't been doing since then so that they don't continue laying off police officers and firefighters, and teachers and so forth. and make investments in education in the next generation. and if we did that, put people back to work, get the economy moving again, if we got unemployment down to 5%, which is where it was in 2007, that by itself would reduce the deficit by 40%. >> yeah, that's -- >> that's what i'd like to see. >> so short-term stimulus, combination of ways of focusing on getting -- >> long-term investments -- >> right. >> because those investments in infrastructure are key. >> right. >> we used to invest close to 3% of gdp in infrastructure pre-reagan. now we inves

states where we were knocking on doors and we were asking people to remember us on the day that they were going out to vote. and so while it was very frustrating to not -- you know, to be politically engaged in this, in my country, and not be able to go out and express who i want to run this country and to lead us, i think we had a tremendous amount of impact. >> that brings up our next big topic. this is one of the things that i think dominated the discussion after the election, which is the changing demographics of america, the changing faces of america and the respective coalitions that have come together around barack obama and the republican party particularly. i want to talk about why it's not the latino vote that tells us the most about the republican party's future. my story of the week right after this. nning four. fortunately we've got ink. nning four. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only thing we've ever wanted to do and ink helps us do it. make your

decade, two trends conspired to reduce our privacy. first, there's technology. social media allowed us to share every detail of our lives intentionally and unintensely. the photo tagged on facebook, the wayward strike to reply to all button. you get the picture. we now leave a digital trail traced by anyone who buys access to it. this week, the obama campaign knew what tv shows the targeted voters watched. there's the massive explosion of the surveillance in the wake of 9/11. thanks to the petri at act and continued under the obama administration. the government has more access to info about us than at anytime in history. a small example of what this looks like. check out this graph of u.s. government from google. these are requests that don't require warrants and this doesn't include the security related requests not disclosed. for awhile, i thought the combination of these trends, the u bik wiity of technology was pushing us to a future where citizens would be unable to keep their secrets while the government keeps its secrets. i feared it would end up totally exposed to each other a
